Excellent all round - food, service and beer. No card machine but told in advance. Visiting family from elsewhere and would be more than happy to have this quality on my doorstep ( accepting that I'll get charged more for it!!) 👍👍😃😃😃😃

Very big portions, the food took some time to come but there was 7 of us. It's not the nicest place to eat, not like eating in a restaurant but the food was good and reasonable prices.

Nice place, friendly staff & really big portions, something different adjacent to the shopping centre, worth a visit.

Haven't been here in a while but I will gladly vouch for the food being top quality. Quirky place to eat with friendly staff. I don't know if they still do it, but if they do I highly recommend the chicken pie. Simple dish but really creamy. Been a favourite of mine for years. Xmas dinners there are also really... More

I wanted to take my elderly mother and her friend out for lunch, and chose this place because it advertised "home cooking". They enjoyed themselves and the food, but I doubt it was anything more than "chill cook". I was wanting to ensure they had something special. It was just okay, nothing more.

As we were driving through town my wife said what about the Barge. I said ok. We have been before and had burgers amongst other things, but this... More

We'd heard about the Barge from friends, thought it sounded unusual so had to visit whilst in Grimsby. Loved the setting, on the water, and walking down the stairs felt akin to being on a boat as there's a definite tilt so you need your sea legs! Spent most of the time sitting outside, as the weather was warm and... More
